[laughter] "this person is very prepared." but that struck me as being, you know, something to get involved with this thing called hip-hop and rap music. and then if you study rap music, you will understand that it's not a music. it's rap, a vocal application over music, and the musics have already been defined as soul, jazz, rhythm and blues, then rock and roll, and so on and so on. and that got me into doing a serious back cataloguing of understanding the history of black people's involvement in music. and if you study our music, you get our history by default, especially the last 100 years. when you looked at the early years of rap, people like grandmaster flash, organizations, those rap artists took a risk. they took a commercial risk in the first place, because with rare exceptions, what was then called r&b, soul music didn't have a lot of political overtones. did that inspire you? did that affec
